The Disney Princess, without question one of the most popular characters you will track down on your Disney vacation. Princess fans will spend countless hours in line for meet and greets with these beauties. After some research it becomes clear that Magic Kingdom’s Princess Fairytale Hall is the one stop shop to meet your favorites. The lines for these princesses at Fairytale Hall can consistently exceed 60 minute wait times. What if I shared with you the best ways to bypass these long lines and still meet your favorite Disney Princesses? Here are the 10 Best Places to Meet Disney Princesses.
10. Merida in Fairytale Garden
This red headed beauty is tucked away in a Fairytale Garden just past Cinderella’s Castle towards Tomorrowland. She can only be found at Magic Kingdom and I find her wait times to be fairly minimal. The kids also can participate in a bow and arrow lesson while waiting.
9. Belle at Enchanted Tales with Belle
This Magic Kingdom attraction is my favorite place to meet Belle. You actually get to participate in an interactive story while meeting Belle. Heading to this attraction first in your day can help with long wait times. Also I would consider using a Fast Pass+ on it if this Princess is on your wish list!
8. Aurora at Grand Floridian’s Garden View Tea Room
This may not be the most affordable option but it is definitely the most memorable. Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort hosts a Perfectly Princess Tea Party where Aurora joins as the princess of honor. The tea party has a story, sing-along, princess parade, and lunch. You also receive some special gifts like an Aurora doll, fresh rose, and keepsake jewelry. With a price tag of over $300 this is surly a special occasion splurge. Aurora can also be found at the Epcot France Pavilion with minimal lines daily.
7. 1900 Park Fare Dinner at the Grand Floridian
If you would like to meet Cinderella with her Prince Charming then this character dinner is the one to book. You will also get to chat up the entertaining Tremaine family. The only meet and greet with the entire cast of Cinderella present. Not guaranteed of course!
6. Princess Jasmine at Adventureland by Magic Carpets
Located near the Magic Carpets of Aladdin ride at Magic Kingdom you can meet Princess Jasmine and Aladdin. Jasmine can also be found at Epcot, Cinderella’s Royal Table, and Akershus Banquet Hall. There is just something magical meeting her right outside her flying carpet though!
5. Sophia The First at Hollywood Studios
Disney Junior’s Princess Sophia can only be found at Hollywood Studios. You can dine with this purple princess at Hollywood And Vine’s Disney Junior Play N’ Dine. She appears for breakfast only.
4. Anna & Elsa at Frozen Sing-Along
If you can’t meet them, join them! The next best thing to actually meeting Anna and Elsa is to have a sing-along with them! This show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios gets you a front row seat to see the sisters and satisfies your Frozen obsession. Can’t make it to Hollywood Studios? Check out Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus located in Epcot. You can also spot these popular sisters in the Festival of Fantasy Parade at Magic Kingdom.
3. Rapunzel & Ariel at Trattoria al Forno
A great character dining spot new to the scene is Trattoria al Forno located at Disney’s BoardWalk. Breakfast is the only character dining meal at Trattoria al Forno, so you’ll want to be sure to make your dining reservations well in advance to meet a couple of the most adventurous Princesses – Rapunzel and Ariel! Plus, you’ll get to meet their handsome Princes, Flynn Rider and Prince Eric.
2. Akershus Royal Banquet Hall
A popular spot to meet a handful of princesses all at one time is the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot. Located in Norwegian area, this character dining experience offers the opportunity to see Cinderella, Snow White, Mulan, Jasmine, Ariel, or Belle. This reservation is sometimes easier to snag than the Cinderella’s Royal Table meal. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner all the while the princesses are on a rotating schedule.
1. Cinderella’s Royal Table
The all time best Disney princess experience, a meal at Cinderella’s Royal Table. Line up 180 days in advance to snag prime reservations at this fan favorite. While dining in Cinderella’s castle you will meet Belle, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel, Snow White, and Cinderella. A keepsake photo with Cinderella is also included in the dinner price. It is a truly memorable experience you won’t soon forget.
